Another day gone and I think of you
Wonder where you're going
Wonder what you do without me

A telephone call from a friend I know
Left me feeling bitter
Left me feeling so unhappy

'Cause if you couldn't wait for twenty four hours
What good would telegrams and flowers do?

If it wasn't for the reason
That I love you baby
I wouldn't have another thing
To say to you

Might as well stay for a day or two
Find another friend
And have a drink or two to pass the time

Talking over troubles in a whiskey daze
A little drop of cognac helps a man
To face the lonely times

'Cause it's sad being home
And I've given up trying
I've got no lyin' that I wanna do

If it wasn't for the reason
That I love you, baby
I wouldn't have another thing
To say to you

Wish I could find a way
Make up the words to say
You cheated and you lied
You took away the little pride
I had inside

If it wasn't for the reason
That I love you, baby
I wouldn't have another thing
To say to you

Another day gone and I think of you
Wonder where you're going
Wonder what you do without me

A telephone call from a friend I know
Left me feeling bitter
Left me feeling so unhappy

Might as well stay for a day or two
Find another friend
And have a drink or two to pass the time

Talking over troubles in a whiskey daze
A little drop of cognac
Helps a man to face the lonely times
